    Default unlike virtually every other venue on the entire internet

    The posts attached to the recipes on The New York Times’ stand-alone Cooking site are everything the archetypal internet comment is not. Held up against Ortberg’s fictional-but-also-too-real responses, Cooking’s are genuinely additive, have a ready-made takeaway, and best of all, inspire downright bonhomie toward my fellow man.

    Subscription based. That's a different ballpark than most of the Internet.

    You had me at Ortberg. The Toast was some of the funniest stuff in the intertubes. An all-time fave: Everything What's Wrong of Possums

    What are you doing about it?

    Moderated. Probably with all posts going through approval.
    When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.
